The room are fine, tge prices is probably the cheapest around here. Great location and the staff are super nice. My girlfriend and I stayed here for 6 nights and if we'd visit Leon again I'm sure we will stay in this hostel again.

Across the road from Bigfoot where you can drink with the partiers there. Support the locals and stay here for half the price!!! A much better environment to stay in. Woohoo! Good clean kitchen too. Plenty of stuff to use.

Situated opposite Bigfoot Hostel (party Hostel) on backpacker alley, Hostal Guardabarranco is a quiet but super Central place to stay. You can tap into the party scene but get back to your quiet place to sleep in peace! It has a kitchen with a big fridge so you can hit the markets and stock up on fresh food. Our private...

Stayed here 5 nights and had a great time! Located just in front of Big Foot Hostal but offering rooms 2 times cheaper, it has a perfect location in the center of Leon! For a solo traveler like me, it was a great place to meet other people with the small but cozy common area. The owner and employees were...

The place is in a good location in the city, you get private room with bathroom and shower on 16$ (of season) and the place is not loud at all, good kitchen and good wifi. The rooms needs a little bit updating and it will be a 5 stars!

Guardabarranco was a simple hostal/hotel just up the road from the much nosier Bigfoot Hostel. The dorm room cost $6 and was perfectly fine; new mattresses on the beds, 3 fans blasting out much needed ventilation, lockers, and a clean bathroom. There is a guest kitchen, free coffee and wifi throughout the property. The staff were very friendly, I'm but...

Supreme location, staff, accommodations. Clean, well-equipped with every and all needs for a killer stay in León. Location, location, location. Can't stress that enough. Close to the party, yet still tranquil. Surf shop next door! In the middle of the thrift shop, cheap-eats district, grocery, bank, todo en más! Price per night like a magic carpet ride through a unicorn-filled...
